Vanadinite on Barite - Location: Mibladen¸ Morocco. Large Miniature. Moroccan vanadinite specimens are basically legendary. This is very nice combination specimen of the tabular habit of vanadinite perched on a platy barite crystal matrix. The vanadinite crystals are sharp and well formed. The crystals are a bright red to reddish-orange color and very lustrous. The barite crystals form as tabular crystals. The barite crystals are actually a white color but appear black because they are coated with a thin coating of hematite and/or Goethite. The vanadinite crystals contrast well against the black hematite/goethite coated barite crystals.
